Republicans hold the White House, and majorities in the House and the Senate, because of the long, hard hours grassroots volunteers worked on their campaigns over the last four election cycles. Those grassroots volunteers – millions of whom I represent, as Co-Founder and CEO of Tea Party Patriots – were motivated to work by the campaign promises made by Republican candidates.

And the plan proposes to cut the rate on so-called “pass through” income – the income generated by small businesses that file via their owners’ personal ...

NFL players this past weekend chose to make a political statement by kneeling instead of standing with their hand on their heart for the Star-Spangled Banner – a move that left many Americans feeling betrayed by a league they have cheered on for decades, writes Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin in her latest column for The Washington Times. The Washington Times has the inside scoop: It is hardly a coincidence that the national anthem was first played at a baseball game during the Civil War, that the song captured the sporting world’s attention during the first World War, or that it went on to become a permanent fixture at sporting ...
